The COVID-19 pandemic threw live poker out of gear for over two years, but now that casinos have opened up at 100% capacity, offline events are back in full force!
One of the most anticipated live events of the year, the India Poker Championship, is returning with a brand-new smashing edition, IPC Megastacks at Casino Vegas, Hotel Mechi Crown, located in Jhapa, Nepal, in May. While the series to be hosted at the Spartan Poker LIVE poker room guarantees a mind-blowing ₹3.50 Crores across its four-day-four-event run, there are more reasons beyond poker you should consider attending the stop. A Pool Party for one!

Yeah, that’s right, the much-awaited live stop takes off on May 17, and just two days later, all attending players can enjoy a grand party by the hotel swimming pool! You might have spotted several celebrities at live casinos in Goa, and many of them will be making their way to Casino Vegas at Hotel Mechi Crown for the series. So, there will be several Bollywood and TV actors, influencers, and other celebrities hobnobbing with players at the series and the Pool Party. Bracelet winner and Spartan Poker Team Pro Nikita Luther will also be in attendance.
That’s just a start. You can pay to book organized chopper rides and even take day trips to local attractions for those who love the outdoors. And when you’re playing poker, you can enjoy the thoroughly enjoyable live shows at the casino that IPC has mapped out for you, bringing in some fabulous performers! Not just that, you can also try out a variety of cuisines, all at the venue.
Let’s take a more detailed look at the non-poker attractions you can enjoy on the sidelines of IPC Megastacks.
The summer heat in Indian cities is searing us all, but the IPC Megastacks that runs from May 17 to 22 at Casino Vegas at Hotel Mechi Crown in Jhapa, Nepal, comes as the perfect summer cooler.
Topping the list of attractions in the series will be the glamourous and fun Pool Party at the hotel poolside on May 19. Giving you the perfect breather to relax and enjoy the place while hobnobbing with your poker buddies and a host of Bollywood and other A-listers, the Pool Party will take your travel exhaustion away and rejuvenate you to take on the felts with the right mindset!

So who will be there? We can expect Spartan Poker Team Pro Nikita Luther to be in attendance. We’re keeping the rest of the list a surprise, but rest assured, several poker-playing celebrities and popular influencers will be there!
Players can also book organized chopper rides to take in the panoramic aerial view of the natural beauty that Jhapa abounds in. While the copter rides will cost you and depend on factors like availability and weather conditions, if you’re able to book your seat into one, you’re in for a ride you’ll remember!
If playing for hours gets mundane, the tournament organizers have lined up some fascinating live shows to liven up your spirits.
What better way to satiate your senses than try some delectable exotic food? You mustn’t miss out on the live food counters at the casino, where you can try a variety of Indian, continental, and Nepalese cuisine, with local flavors thrown in.
Your travel to IPC Megastacks can easily be extended into a family vacation with many fun day trips to nearby attractions or pubs and eat-outs. There are tea gardens and the Rangeet River to visit if you’re looking to connect with nature and many other places worth checking out.
About IPC Megastacks
IPC Megastacks is a new sub-brand of India`s longest-running live tournament brand, IPC, which offers tournaments with relatively larger buy-ins and deeper structures. For this reason, the upcoming edition is one that most pros will prefer, but this is not to say that recreational players can’t join the party!
Playing live tournament poker at the serene backdrop of Jhapa will offer an experience quite different from what you get in Goa. There will be intense action at the stop, but with all the fun and entertainment IPC offers, the series can also be the perfect outdoor vacation you want to take!
